Governor Romney picks Grover Norquist as his running mate
Okay, not exactly Grover Norquist--but functionally the same: believing, as no legitimate economist does, that Americans can have anything like the government they want without both reducing entitlements and raising taxes. You can't do it with either alone. Yet the GOP presidential team of Tweedledum and Tweedledee insist on obeying Mr. Norquist.
President Obama doesn't say you can do it with taxes alone--he proposes a mix. So it's not a choice between taxes or entitlements--it's a choice between sanity and, well, you know, the other.
